About Wakatipu Grill
Our Signature lakeside restaurant, the Wakatipu Grill, at the Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa reflects the best of New Zealand's culinary heritage. The cuisine is inspiring with provocative takes on New Zealand flavors. Vast windows, an open kitchen and rotisserie, along with two circular slate fireplaces lend even more drama to this magnificent space. In the bar, be tempted by yet another captivating perspective of the lake, or an exceptional vintage - the 1000-strong wine cellar has a keen focus on Otago's best winemakers. Linger on the generous terrace where the elements combine to spectacular effect: the lake's indigo depths, the clear air and a decadent outdoor fire pit.
High Tea is served every Sunday 13.00 - 15.00
Everything was amazing. We are locals and hadn't been for a while. Decided to catch the ferry across - perfect. Greeted at the restaurant like long time friends, great table with views. All staff were super friendly and attentive. Food super tasty and presented beautifully. Cauliflower dish and the salmon dish a stand out. Cant wait to go back. Well done team.
Appreciate the locals card and wonderful extras because of the birthday guest. Superb service. Delicious food.
Lovely venue, but average food for a premium price.
Food was good, but service was very slow - The staff were friendly and doing their best, but were just not able to keep up with the volume of dinners, which meant that everything took a lot longer than it should have. The staff that were there that night put in a good effort, but given how busy the restaurant was that night, I think there should have been at least two more staff on. It was fortunate that we were not in a hurry, because dinner took a very long time...
Food was great but the seat was quite uncomfortable, we sat on a white plastic one
We had a wonderful dinner here on our last night in New Zealand. Great service and lots of little special touches made this a meal to remember.
Fantastic service and food. Amit on the bar is always very welcoming and obliging.
Excellent service and food.
Wonderful evening ... great service ..great main and dessert ..starter not up to the same standard...hope this is helpful ... thank you..
I’ve visited the grill a couple of times. The food is great and Grant and his team do an excellent job. The service delivery is somewhere poor. - not acknowledging arrival - no table ready at time of booking - long time to take a drink order - no explanation of food or specials - no follow up on how we enjoyed the food The grill competes with restaurants in town but value for price and service is not to be compared. I think the team can do better.
Another outstanding meal & service Many thanks Eion & Jan
Fantastic First Table experience! Top end dining, lovely ambience and attentive service
As long time locals this is a favourite dining spot for us. Great lake edge location and relaxed dining atmosphere. Great food and service made for a top night.
Amazing service beautiful food. We were treated like royalty. Thank you so much!
The manager from Kerry Ireland who seated us set the atmosphere for a great night. I have been to wakitipu grill several times and come back each time for the excellent service and delicious food. However, this time the bar was set even higher. The manager from Kerry helped us celebrate our new baby and grandparents visiting from the UK from the moment he sat us. Then we had Laura from Falkirk as our waitress who’s service was seamless and delightful. All around a great experience- thank you! The food, as always - incredible!
Service was excellent and food so good
Excellent experience, as always.
The maître was outstanding when he greeted us coming in and the waitress that looked after our table was great. Well done
Hey again a first class experience. One of my top three desserts (braeburn apple banoffee)
We had a great meal with an awesome view as we sat right in the window looking over the lake. Dishes were well put together and the amuse-bouche was a nice touch.
Great service from the start and beautiful views. Food was beautifully presented and delicious!
Draughty in the glassed area - asked to be moved eventually but enjoyed our evening with you.
Lovely setting and great food.
